In the Data Analytics program, students gain hands-on experience applying the latest data technologies and sophisticated analytical methods, with rigorous courses in computer programming, machine learning and artificial intelligence, data engineering, visualization, and data mining. The Data Analytics experience includes real-world problem-solving across all functions of an organization, including strategy, sales and marketing, accounting, finance, human resources, and operations.
